06/27/2016 Got a call from the clinic to start progesterone on 06/29/2016 cause our embryo transfer is going to be on 07/04/2016. Hubby gets to go this time since it's around a holiday and he can be off, this makes me so happy. It's going to be a fresh transfer not frozen embryos and this we plan on transferring 2 embryos to maximize our chances. I pray this is the one that is going to work.
06/29/2016 My Last shot of Lupron today and i started progesterone. My bummbumm is not even completely healed from the previous round of shots but here we go again. I'm trying the 23 gauge this time to see if it's better and less painful. Injecting the medicine is much slower but if it helps i want to use these needles.
06/30/2016 Sometimes i really don't understand why things can't go smoothly for us just for once. The coordinator calls and instead of giving us an embryology update she didn't have a lot of good news. The donor apparently wasn't doing very well and even we expressed our desire to transfer 2 embryos there may be only 1 embryo available for us. She said she will email us a couple of backup profiles (frozen embryos) that we can pick from, like we have a choice, so we picked one, just in case. The fun part is we won't know if we are getting the fresh embryo(s) or the frozen ones until the day of the transfer. To say i'm disappointed is an understatement. I honestly don't care if it's fresh or frozen we had our heart set on transferring 2 embryos this time around to maximize our chances. The waiting sucks. The not knowing sucks. I just want our baby already.
07/03/2016 Flew to California today, we got lucky since our flight was delayed by 20 minutes not giving us enough time to make our connecting flight so the desk agent bumped us to a direct flight at no extra charge and we made it to California early.
07/05/2016 Went and got acupuncture this morning since i read it helps with implantation then off we went to Fairfield to tour the Jelly Belly factory. We loved the tour, you can taste the sugar in the air.
